Obnoxiously preachy
18 June 2008 | by yfguitaristSee all my reviews

I loved the first 3 seasons of Family Guy, but was turned off by the drastic drop in quality during Season 4 and beyond. Granted, there have been classic episodes since then, but for the most part the writing degenerated into immature jabs at conservatives, republicans, the right-wing, religion, and anything else the writers disagree with.

This episode is a good example of that. It's a string of tired stereotypes of the south, religion, and anything remotely right-wing. Now, I'm not against offensive humor, but I like my shows to be equal opportunity offenders, not biased and ignorant shows that beat you over the head with their opinions. I even find some humor aimed at Christians to be funny (see George Carlin). But the writing isn't funny anymore. All it does is reinforce clichéd stereotypes (9/11, really?) to try and further their left-wing, anti-religious agenda.

Try South Park for a more balanced, unbiased cartoon.
